Welcome to another school year. I will make my report brief.
When I became president a few years ago, the Local was in a very difficult position. We had had a change-over in management and many difficulties followed, including a labour relations climate that we did not expect. Today, I am happy to report that countless issues have been resolved, and we completed bargaining with good results that will assure 0.5hrs per week more for our Education Assistants who have been struggling to get hours since those were decimated by previous governments.
